"The summer of my thirteenth year on the planet was one of great confusion for me. Having wasted the first few months of my teenage life as a self—styled retro hippie, I was at a loss for where I fit in culturally. Buying a VHS copy of The Year Punk Broke on the recommendation of a friend, I had a watershed moment. This movie was my entrance to the world of punk rock. I absorbed everything I could from the movie and would watch it almost weekly for the next year. Watching it now, some 17 years later, I have a new appreciation for the film. It's more than a tour movie, more than a music documentary, more than a perfect time capsule of the underground pre—mainstream explosion, more than a hilarious satire of Madonna's Truth or Dare–it's the most important film I ever saw." — Damian Abraham, lead singer of Fucked Up
